International Welcome Event

Each year, the International Student Support team organises a welcome event for all new international students. In 2017 this will take place on Sunday 1 October. You will be officially welcomed by the President of Imperial College, Professor Alice Gast along with some other key members of staff at the College. There will also be the opportunity to hear from international alumnus Christina Blach Petersen who graduated from the world-renowned Innovation Design and Engineering Masters programme and is now a successful  entrepreneur.

After the welcome talks, you will have an opportunity to visit stalls from Imperial departments, the College Health and Dental Centres and local businesses. Look out for competitions with some great prizes!

This event also offers a great opportunity to mix with other students who have recently arrived in the UK. A free buffet lunch or light afternoon tea will be provided.

The event is free of charge and there is no need to register in advance.
